Egypt Birthday: Little fans of pyramids, mummies and hieroglyphics come to the Egypt Birthday fully at their expense. The invitation card is, of course, a pyramid, a rally leads to the realm of the pharaohs and the food is also fed according to the type of country on the Nile. And how is your own name written in hieroglyphs??


A funny idea is one pyramid to make as an invitation card. It is best to use yellow construction paper. Don’t forget to include the fold and the pyramid will be glued together. Either you put the card flat in an envelope – then the guests can stick it together themselves – or you hand it over to the invitees as a finished pyramid.

You can also get one papyrus scroll imitate. For this, a sheet of paper is colored with black tea and trimmed to old. If you tear the edges beforehand, the whole thing looks really antique. The text is written on the paper and decorated with a few hieroglyphs. Then the paper is rolled up and tied with a colored thread.

white cotton bags or T-shirts can be wonderfully painted with fabric paints – of course with hieroglyphs. It is especially nice when the hieroglyphs represent your own name. Every hieroglyph can be assigned to a letter: A is a forearm, D is a hand, F is a horned viper, etc. An assignment can be found on the Internet.
